Perfect

Funny X3

This game never gets old for me. It's very creative, clever, AND hilarious. You have to be clever enough yourself to beat it. But overall I give it a 9/10.

Horrible

Huge disappointment!

I normally love games of this genre, games such as Shadowgate, Deja Vu, King's Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry. I never played the previous Escape from Monkey Island titles, but I've always heard good things about the series. Therefore, I was excited to pick of this forth installment.

However, I was extremely disappointed in this title. It was extremely boring, not funny (the main selling point of the game is that it supposed to be funny), and most of the puzzles were random and did not make any sense. The only slightly fun part of the game was playing Monkey Kombat.

I'd only recommend this game for huge fans of the Escape from Monkey Island series. Even then, I'd only recommend renting it, because I was able to beat the game in three hours. If you are not a huge fan of the previous games, stay far away from this one.
